With specific reference to electromagnetic applications, the possibility of obtaining new materials with prescribed anisotropy, dispersion and nonlinearity over a wide frequency band is of utmost importance.

Design and Fabrication of Deformable Antenna Substrates

In a variety of key problems, the research approach pays attention in bridging synthesis/analysis (engineering) with practical realization (materials science) of complex devices which leads to the broader definition of the research theme as the “Automated Design and Realization of Complex Material Systems”

Hence, the primary objective of Dr. Kiziltas is to understand, design and optimize new materials and composites and finally fabricate them with desired new properties for device performance enhancements and/or miniaturization purposes. A clear understanding of engineered composites requires an interdisciplinary thought process, grounded in a sound fundamental knowledge of traditional composite materials and a powerful design tool.
